Could you specifically tell me what kind of growing conditions nandina likes. Do you have a picture to send? Can it be used in fresh floral arrangements?

I will include a couple of articles so you can see different photos. Heavenly bamboo can be invasive; the berries propagate easily so you soon have several shrubs. (By the way the berries are poisonous to birds.) The dwarf varieties are well behaved and don't produce the berries. You can cut off sprigs to use in fresh arrangements.
